The Namdhari sect has long been maintaining its own lineage of Satgurus, needless to say, Namdharis don't consider Guru Granth Sahib Maharaj as their Guru because they allege the Gurgaddi was handed over to Balak Singh by Guru Gobind Singh Sahib mysteriously appearing before him in the year 1812 (I wonder how!). The Namdharis have their own places of worship, code of conduct and rituals which are much deviated from the Sikh philosophy. Recently, it came into my attention that the Namdharis have devised their own gutka, which they call the Namdhari Nitnem. The title page carries the heading of ੴ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੂ ਰਾਮ ਸਿੰਘ ਜੀ ਸਹਾਇ (Ik Onkar Satguru Ram Singh Ji sahay); and the index of this supposed Nitnem gutka has some of their banis which read like, * ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤ ਤਿਆਰ ਕਰਨ ਤੇ ਹਵਨ ਕਰਨ ਦੀਆਂ ਬਾਣੀਆਂ (Banis for preparing Amrit and performing havan) * ਹਵਨ ਕਰਨ ਦੀ ਵਿਧੀ (Technique of performing havan) * ਰਹਿਤਨਾਮਾ ਪਾਤਸ਼ਾਹੀ ੧੨ਵੀਂ (Rehatnama of Patshahi the 12th!!!!) The question is, can the Namdharis or other cults be allowed to use the word Nitnem for their petty purposes, even when the contents of the gutka are in gross violation of Sikhi principles? Doesn't such an outrageous attack on Sikh philosophy call for an intervention from the Akal Takht authorities?
